I don't really feel like blogging about anything today.....just no energy to do it.

Actually, I've been getting a little burned out. Maybe I'll take a short break....dunno.

This is what we've been trying to tell the anti-war psychos for two years now: these Islamofascists don't give a rat's ass if you're *cough* against the War on Terror - they'll saw your head off just like Nick Berg's in a heartbeat.

They're almost like Terminators: they can't be bargained with, they can't be reasoned with, they don't feel pity or remorse, and they will not stop - EVER - until you are dead.

So....those of you that continue to think that we're waging an 'imperialistic war' or a war for oil - think again. And think hard about it because there's no going back once your head is being lofted into the air while they chant 'Allah Ahkbar!!'....they mean to 'play for keeps' and there are many of us that intend to facilitate their meeting of Allah.

230 Years Old & Still Kicking Butt

The birth of the world's greatest navy:

The Birth of the Navy of the United States

On Friday, October 13, 1775, meeting in Philadelphia, the Continental Congress voted to fit out two sailing vessels, armed with ten carriage guns, as well as swivel guns, and manned by crews of eighty, and to send them out on a cruise of three months to intercept transports carrying munitions and stores to the British army in America. This was the original legislation out of which the Continental Navy grew and as such constitutes the birth certificate of the navy.

To understand the momentous significance of the decision to send two armed vessels to sea under the authority of the Continental Congress, we need to review the strategic situation in which it was made and to consider the political struggle that lay behind it.

The Golden Ticket

An early birthday present from my wife: a ticket to the 2005 Miramar Air Show this Sunday!! And not just any ticket - this one is for one of the 'preferred' areas: the Flight Deck Chalet. W00t!!

I'll be taking my digital camera along to attempt to get some shots of both the static displays and the Blue Angels exhibition.

Five Years Later

Five years ago the USS Cole (DDG-67) was attacked by Al Qaida:

On October 12, 2000, USS Cole came to the harbor of Aden, Yemen for a routine fuel stop. Cole completed mooring at 09:30. Refueling started at 10:30. At 11:18 local time (08:18 UTC), a small craft approached the port side of the destroyer, and an explosion occurred, putting a 40-by-40-foot (12 m-by-12 m) gash in the ship's port side. The crew fought flooding in the engineering spaces and had the damage under control by the evening. Divers inspected the hull and said the keel was not damaged.

Seventeen sailors were killed and 39 others were injured in the blast. The injured sailors were taken to the United States Army's Landstuhl Regional Medical Center near Ramstein, Germany, and later to the U.S.

The attack, organized by Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida terrorist organization, was carried out by suicide bombers Ibrahim al-Thawr and Abdullah al-Misawa.

And although the payback for this is just now coming to fruition, let us never forget those that were murdered and injured in this cowardly attack.

Linda has a much better tribute to those murdered five years ago.

30,000 Dead and Rising

Death Toll Surpasses 30,000 in Asia Quake

Villagers desperate to find survivors dug with bare hands Sunday through the debris of a collapsed school where children had been heard crying beneath the rubble after a massive earthquake killed more than 30,000 people in Pakistani-controlled Kashmir alone.

"I have been informed by my department that more than 30,000 people have died in Kashmir," Tariq Mahmmod, communications minister for the Himalayan region, told The Associated Press.

Saturday's magnitude-7.6 quake also struck India and Afghanistan, which reported hundreds dead.

Pakistan's army called the earthquake the country's worst-ever disaster and appealed for urgent help. Rival India, the United States, the United Nations, Britain, Russia, China, Turkey, Japan and Germany all offered assistance.

You can make donations to the following sites:I'm sure there are about a TON of other ways to make donations to help.
